Description:
None of the factors affecting the Mediterranean Sea and its coasts, along with its inhabitants, exist in isolation. Different pressures act over time and in unison to affect the resilience of ecosystems and their ability to deliver ecosystem services. Increasing and multiple uses of ocean space increase the chances that certain threats will cause more impact when occurring simultaneously than the additive effect of individual pressures.
